Bicycle Stolen from Non-profit Organization

Together We Can Solve Hunger….it’s a non-profit organization that was established less than a year ago with a single goal – to assist the less fortunate Belizeans in the city. TWCSH is the brainchild of Shaheed Mai and his family in which they feed the homeless and provide assistance to families that cannot afford the basics that are sometimes taken for granted. Although it is mainly funded through the family’s purse, Shaheed and his mother, Geraldine Mai, have been using small donations from the public to provide breakfast at Battlefield Park from Monday to Saturday and lunch on Sundays to the homeless.  Gerladine told us that a bicycle was stolen from the house on Welt Street in Belize City.

“It has set us back tremendously. Somebody walked into our yard and stole our only means of transportation that we take out our little food to feed the homeless. We usually leave at six in the morning and we take two coolers—one that we pack our food in, the breakfast and one that we take to put in the coffee…those are heavy stuff. So our bike was very important to us although it is just a bicycle. And somebody came in and thief our bicycle and it really has set us back. It put us back a lot because we used the bike to take out our little stuff. Cause we can’t take all the stuff just me and Shaq alone. So it has really saddened us, but it will not stop us to fulfill or continue with our mission helping people that are less fortunate, reaching out to people like the homeless. So it has really saddened us that somebody would want to deprive us of something that is so essential to our organization.”

“Have you guys been able to make a report on this to get some kind of help in getting back this bicycle?”

 

Geraldine Mai

“No we have not…unfortunately. The crime rate and thieving bicycles and all that stuff is so common. We just thought that we would do how best we could and that is exactly how we are doing until Channel Five reached out to us to give us the opportunity to ask somebody to donate or simply replace the bicycle for us.”
